The Programme and Organizing Committee of the 13th International Conference “Challenges of Europe: Growth, Competitiveness, Innovation and Well-being” invite you to propose a Special Session to be included in the programme of 2019 conference. Please send in your proposal by November 5, 2018.
Please read carefully the procedure and guidelines regarding Special Sessions at the Conference:

What do we offer?

  • We aim to allow 15 to 25 minutes for each presentation slot in a Special Session

What do we ask?

  • Each Special Session has a minimum of 3 and maximum of 6 registered presenters
  • Presenters apply for a Special Session on the basis of a Draft paper (Work-in-progress) or an Extended abstract (deadline February 25, 2019)
  • Presentations are based on a Draft paper/Extended abstract that has been uploaded on the Conference submission website

If a Special Session does not meet the programme committee’s conditions, it will still be included in the programme, but labelled as a Work-in-progress session (S-type).
